Electrical and automation equipment to be supplied to Al Jubail plant
ABB has won an order to provide electrical and automation equipment and related services for a new seamless-tube mill and pipe production plant in Saudi Arabia.
The project, in the Al Jubail area of Saudi, is a joint venture between ArcelorMittal and the Saudi-based Bin Jarallah Group.
“Our expertise in the metals industry and strong local presence in the region were key factors in winning this important order. Our reliable and energy-efficient technologies, along with our experience in project execution, will help the new plant to operate effectively from the start,” said Veli Matti Reinkkala, head of ABB’s Process Automation Division.
The firm will deliver electrical infrastructure and equipment, including a 115 kilovolt gas-insulated switchgear substation, medium- and low-voltage switchgear, motors and variable-speed drives. The scope of supply also includes an automation system based on ABB's Extended Automation System 800xA for order management, production scheduling, storage management, production and quality reporting, and material tracking.
In addition, ABB will provide engineering, installation, commissioning, operator training, and other related services for the project.
